Leading payroll and HR software solution provider PayGlobal has announced that COO Stephen Canning has been promoted to lead the growing technology company after current CEO Hugh Martyn’s decision to step down.
Following the recent acquisition of PayGlobal’s distribution channel in Australia, which has ensured the technology company is positioned for further growth, Hugh Martyn has decided to step down to pursue other interests.
“The board is indeed saddened that Hugh has decided to pursue new challenges outside PayGlobal,” said the company’s Chairman Greg Lancaster. “His leadership over the past 5 years has done far more than just steady the ship, as evidenced by the successful recent acquisitions of a competitor and the PayGlobal practice of our dominant distributor in Australia. Together these initiatives will double the company’s revenue and profit,” Lancaster said. “We wish Hugh well in whatever his new challenges may bring him and look forward to watching that success evolve.”
The new CEO appointment comes from within PayGlobal, allowing for a seamless transition. Current COO Stephen Canning, who joined PayGlobal in 2010 and is based in Sydney, will take the reins from early November. Lancaster said, “The board has appreciated Stephen’s contribution to date and is excited to work with him on the future direction of the company.”
Canning, as part of the executive team, has helped shape PayGlobal’s strategy and business development on both sides of the Tasman. Canning has more than 25 years’ experience in software, services and consultancy, spanning various business sectors in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Incoming CEO Stephen Canning said, “We have a great team of motivated people at PayGlobal, we have a culture of achievement based on providing our customers great solutions that will continue to evolve. I see PayGlobal being a thought leader in the delivery of payroll and HRIS, and setting standards for the industry.”
PayGlobal is one of Australia and New Zealand’s leading integrated payroll and HR software (HRIS) solution providers, employing 120+ staff, with over 500 customers across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. PayGlobal has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland and Christchurch.
